The following are some recommended conceptual self-assessment questions for the lesson called Introduction to Hypothesis Testing by Example for Geospatial Contexts. They’re intended for you to work through to test your own knowledge of the key concepts we covered there.
We focused mainly in this topic on two-tailed hypothesis testing, i.e. where your hypotheses are of this form:
For a given statistical significance of , which is akin to a confidence level of (1-, how does this relate to confidence intervals?
What is a rejection region?
What is the equation for calculating your test statistic and what does each term mean / where does it come from?
What are the six steps for carrying out a hypothesis test?
